Have you been thinking about booking a boudoir session but have some lingering questions?!  

Doing a boudoir session will be, without a doubt, one of the most liberating things you do in your lifetime. Which means that it’s something you should feel prepared for and empowered through.

In this post, we are going to answer your top 5 frequently asked questions about boudoir photography with our studio.  

Before we get into it, I want to point out that feeling prepared for your shoot is completely different than feeling “ready”.  

To be totally honest, it’s rare to find a client that went into booking their session feeling 100% “ready” to do so. That’s simply because, for most, booking a boudoir shoot is a step outside their comfort zone. Which suggests that there is some exciting, uncharted territory to be explored.  

For this reason, I want to dismantle that term altogether in the context of our boudoir sessions. Because, you can never fully anticipate what it feels like to reach new levels of self-confidence until you are standing in front of the camera, basking in the power of your inner goddess.

And if you’ve done a session before, I’m talking to you too! The inner strength that you hold is limitless and will only accumulate with each boudoir shoot you experience.

Okay, let’s get into those FAQs…

Q: Do you photograph plus-size women?

A: UMMM YES! If you are a plus-size babe, you are in the right place.  

After years of photographing women of ALL body types, I am fully equipped to guide you through a posing sequence that is customized to flatter your individual figure. I want to show you just how stunning your body is, curves and all. Through our wardrobe styling, expert lighting, posing direction, and some other tricks I’ve got up my sleeve, we’ll do just that.

 Here is what a past client had to say about her experience:

“You have found the best boudoir photographer in the entire Bay Area. Lindsay has an amazing eye and turns each photo into a work of art. She makes you feel 100% comfortable, prepares you for your session, and really walks you through each and every shot. I am plus size and just felt like a beautiful woman, not a label, through the entire experience. You will not regret working with Lindsay.” H.E. 

Q: Do you work with older women?

A: Absolutely! Doing a boudoir shoot as an older woman is nothing to be afraid of! Society makes us think that embracing our bodies and feeling “sexy” is something that we outgrow… but, it’s not.

You are never too old to love yourself. On top of that, doing a shoot to commemorate a milestone is one of the best ways to celebrate yourself as you get older and is so powerful to look back on. 

 Here is what a past client had to say about her experience:

Lindsay is amazing. In my early 50’s she helped me to find a confidence in my body I did not have in my 20’s. She makes you feel very comfortable and at ease. At the photo viewing, I was amazed. I could not believe the photos were of me! I look at the photos often, they always make me feel empowered to do whatever I need to do. Thanks, Lindsay!” M.A. 

Q: Do you provide wardrobe pieces or should I bring my own?

A: I have a small collection of lingerie and other accessories, like body jewelry and harnesses, that you can borrow from the day of. However, I still highly encourage my clients to bring items from home. This ensures you will have access to your style no matter what! 

 Here is what a past client had to say about her experience:

I’ve worked with Lindsay twice in the last couple of years. Each time Lindsay was professional, precise, and great to work with. She helps with poses, has an amazing selection of outfits, and keeps a positive attitude no matter what obstacles arise during a shoot. If you are thinking about working with her, do yourself a favor and do it.” B.B.

Q: What financing options do you offer?

A: We offer a few different financing options depending on what your needs are. In our recent blog post, Our Customized Payment Plans, we break down our different options and what their benefits are. 

Here is what a past client had to say about her experience:

Working with Lindsay was a wonderful experience. She knows how to work with you to make you feel comfortable. And her payment plan made it super affordable. The product is a collection of great quality photos to treasure or share.” M.V. 

Q: I hate being in front of the camera. What if that shows in my photos?

A: During your shoot, I’ll be directing you through each pose and I mean down to your exact facial expression. So the truth is, you’ll be more focused on being in your body and holding the pose that you’ll likely forget the lens is there altogether. Not many people like to be in front of the camera but after you see some of your photos on the back of the camera, you’ll see the magic that we’re creating firsthand which will make those nerves worth it.  

Here is what a past client had to say about her experience:

From the moment you walk into the studio, Lindsay will make you feel comfortable, relaxed, at ease for your photoshoot. I was anxious about doing the shoot, but at no point during our photo session did I have those nerves bubble up. Throughout the photo shoot (and even during the reveal), she helped me feel confident about my body. Her passion for her work and encouraging demeanor helped me to break out of my comfort zone, which resulted in the most amazing, gorgeous pictures. I would recommend Lindsay to anyone that is looking for an awesome boudoir session, but particularly for first-timers that may have some nerves about this sort of shoot. Rest assured that you’re in great hands with Lindsay. I would 100% work with her again.” A.A.
